Why Gina Carano Gets Nervous for Interviews

"One of your costars from your new movie turned the Prairie whispered in my ear that you don't like giving interviews because it makes you nervous. And I find that hard to believe. As a woman who stood up to the woke giants, that can't be true. I mean, just having a little interview with me can't make you nervous. Is this fake news Gina Carano? Well, no, it's very real. That's probably why it took a year to get me on. I just, you know, I really am introverted. I really represent a part of America that's introverted. We like to mind our own business. We want to do our own jobs. We want to let people do theirs. Whatever you want to do with your life, that's fine, but just let me do mine. And when I saw that so many people like me were holding their breath for the 2020 election and they were holding their breath, you know, with questions that were okay to ask. And it really bothered me. Then that's when my blood gets hot, that's when I start saying something is when I feel like a big group of people are just being bullied into silence. And so that's why I started speaking up, and now it's like, I do still get nervous. I do just want to do art. I don't want to be a politician, but I will say that the right time to speak up is when you feel like your country is in danger and that we should be fighting this battle, I shouldn't leave this to my nieces. We need to fight this battle because they're going to have to deal with their own and maybe there is a chance that we are able to buy America 25 more years of amazing until this agenda, this comes back around. Maybe this will be an awakening instead of a reset.

Sebastian Talks Hollywood Censorship and Redemption With Gina Carano

"You gotta follow this lady on Twitter. Gina Carano at Gina Carano saw you at the premiere. You got very emotional. Tell us about the movie and why you got so emotional. Oh, I've just, I think I've just been emotional. All my life. But it's kind of like the closure. This movie coming out is kind of the closure of being canceled publicly attacked on so many different levels by so many huge corporations and the mob, of course. And then so when this movie came out, it just feels like, okay, it's out. That's the closure and I'm ready to move on and move forward. And it was so nice the way it happened. There was just, you know, the movie is great. The people that are a part of it are so proud. It just feels like a really good pure way to close out this cancellation drama that has taken over my life. But I wasn't even going to mention it 'cause I wanted to be discreet, but you brought it up. We'll talk about that a little bit more, but it's not closing out. This is, this is for you. This is a vindication. Is it not your back, your bold, you're bigger than ever? You've got your amazing, amazing reputation from The Mandalorian, so you have been vindicated by great people, such as, I mean, Nick sissy, who's really a nice guy.

The Discrepancy Between the Real Polluters and the Developed World

"So talk to us about the discrepancy between the real polluters and the developed world and then secondly, if these people are really serious, if fossil fuels are evil, if industrialization is evil, how much of this is truly the most pernicious post colonial colonialism if it were truly used against, I don't know. Third world countries like Africa who aren't allowed suddenly to use plastics made out of petroleum. So the duality of the standards first and then the real embedded colonial attitude that these people have. And while on the first point, the way the United Nations, they have a thing called the UN climate fund, $100 billion a year and Hillary Clinton was a big proponent of this as the Secretary of State under Obama when they did the UN Paris. Agreement. So this is the way if you look at some of the when they have a UN climate summit. The last one was in Scotland. I'm going to the one in Egypt this year in November. They're having one the next UN climate summit. The highest attending nations are African nations, South American and some of the poorer nations in the world. Why is that? Because they're all exempt from emissions. For one thing. And secondly, they're promised to be recipients of this climate aid, this redistribution, if you will, of money. And I talked to South African development activists who taught Leon low, who talked about this, the UN is going to give money to the leaders best able in Africa and South America, Asia, who are best able to lock their citizens in poverty and keep them poor because if you're poor, your emissions are low. And that's what the UN is doing. They're bribing essentially politicians of poor countries not to allow their people to

Escaped Texas Convict Shot Dead by Law Enforcement

"Escape Texas inmate Gonzalo Lopez was killed by authorities after being accused of murdering 5 people. That's a mass murder, my Friends. The Leon county sheriff's office said in a social media post. He was armed with an AR-15 and a pistol. No officers were injured during the exchange. Now, believe it or not, comes the line. It's one line its actually two, four, 6, 8 words. Just 8 words. That is of enormous significance. Lopez 46 an inmate serving a life sentence. Now you know. People who argue against capital punishment argue primarily that an innocent may be killed. Which is entirely accurate innocent might be killed. It's extremely unlikely. But it is certainly possible. I have argued against that notion all of my life on behalf of capital punishment for murder. That far more innocence are murdered. Because we don't have capital punishment. Then innocence would be murdered. If we did, have capital punishment.

"Get a few hours sleep and don't worry. And he's equally exciting and reassuring at the same time. So he can kind of get you to do anything. And I would say that's kind of been the nature of our relationship. Since then, which I think is why, in a way, we still work together. We hang out together. I think this sense of having fun while we do whatever it is we're doing. Makes it always interesting. How chic were those pajamas? Oh, they were LL being black watch plaid, the navy. I know exactly what I was wearing. When you were both in school. Oh wait, before I go in, I want to actually, let's go back. Umberto, did you have that sense when you met Carol? She's my girl. You know, it's funny because when I meet new people, I end up kind of falling in love with people and I really kind of treat my relationships that way and I really give it my all. So I feel like I was excited to meet her and if I'm really comfortable with people, people get to see this really ridiculous side of me. So I feel like Carol definitely immediately saw this like crazy energetic side of me. I think that was the beginning of just our friendship. And my trust in her and allowing me to be me in that moment. The crowd you hung out with was described by journalist sushin pack as the following. Carolyn umberto hung out with this ripped stocking, heavy eye lined chain smoking, badass crew. I remember seeing the most days as I walked on campus standing around looking bad assy, even then they had their own sense of style northern Cali goth chic, a little Morrissey meets sunshine prep. So what is that aesthetic actually look like? It's so funny. It's hearing all this comeback. It's so funny. I mean, I will not deny that we took getting dressed and going to school really serious. And I will say that we all did hang around with a click that really cared about what vintage clothing we were wearing. And I think we were just we were all shopping at the Salvation army, so it wasn't like we were like spending a ton of money, maybe going to the outlets was like our biggest splurge, but it wasn't shocking to see Carol and I in full faux fur coats with black boots and chain smoking on the steps of sprawl. And we just hung out with everyone who did this. So we looked like a big group of people that ranged from 20 to 40 people and you would see John Cho the actor with us and you would see just all these kind of people that were really into dressing up to go to college. Leon, you graduated with a degree in art practice and American studies, Carol. You have a degree in economics. You began your career as an investment banker. In San Francisco, why? Well, actually, I started as a consultant during the days when management consulting was very big, so my first job was at Deloitte consulting in San Francisco. You know, they offered a very good analyst program where I thought that was what I should do. I studied economics, you know, I wanted to get a good job and it allowed travel. And so I learned a lot of, I would say, fundamental skills, office politics, I wore suits to my first job and pantyhose. I wore funky suits, you know, and I would go shopping. I'm like, I need something funky to wear. I don't want to just wear a normal and Taylor suit. And so everyone would always comment on they're like, wow, you have such an interesting style. And I would say that those were my path shaped, I think, where I ended up career wise, so I don't have any regrets and I enjoyed my time. I did consulting and then I did investment banking before I moved to New York. So it was a bit of an interesting beginning, but I think all skills that were helpful. Power exec. That's the sort of vision I get viewing your seats with your sort of blunt haircut and looking fierce. Leon, after graduation, you went back to the gap, you were still working there, and old navy, you worked on a designing interiors, then you were hired by burberry to run visual merchandising in New York. Carol, you followed umberto to New York and decided to try your hand in the fashion business as well. You applied for a position at ferragamo, where you were offered a job as an intern coming from the investment consulting field that must have felt like a real slap in the face. You turned it down and you got a job at bally in planning and merchandising. So talk a little bit about that transition. How did your parents feel about you going from investment banking and consulting to planning and merchandising in the fashion business? I think I sold them on the idea that I was going to take a year off, move to New York, study for the gmat, because the track that I was on, you know, would send me to business school. They didn't know my struggles and trying to find a job because yes, everyone's like mergers and acquisitions. They're like, we don't know what that is, but yes, you can be an intern. In fashion, you have to start from the bottom and work your way up. And I thought, how is this going to work if I'm going to try to live in New York and support myself? It didn't seem possible until the right opportunity found itself. And luckily, that opportunity was a block away from where I'm Bertha was working. And so it allowed us to at least call each other and meet and we would go talk about where we're going to have lunch, you know, that was the exciting thing. Where are we going to eat? And we would find all the Asian restaurants in midtown. It was great because here we were now back in the same city and seeing each other every day and going out every night. In April of 2000 you went on a vacation to Hong Kong together. And I believe at the time you went to shop, meet designers, eat, get massages, instead you had an epiphany that changed the trajectories of your lives. And I was wondering if you can talk a little bit about how the idea for your business first came to fruition. Yeah, Carolyn and I had worked these corporate jobs and. We really just kind of been really good employees never took a vacation. And so we were like, we deserve a vacation. And so we decided we're going to go visit our college friend who introduced us and Bill young, who is now living in Hong Kong as a journalist. And we said, we're going to come visit and I had been to Hong Kong a bunch, so I was like, Carol, I'm going to show you my version of Hong Kong and it's like shopping, eating massaging, like all the stuff that we love. And so when we went out there, we ended up meeting all these great young designers and all these cool people who are starting a magazine and just somebody making a bag or just all these great people. And we were buying it up. I mean, Karen, I was shopping. There was no tomorrow. And in that moment,.

"Trotsky was perhaps the most intellectual of the bunch Of the communist revolutionaries that overthrew and took over Russia The truth is they never had even close to majority of the population behind them About 20% They didn't even have a majority of the quote unquote workers behind them And even though a number of them would serve time in Siberia the fact is that their efforts were not taken seriously enough until it was too late Trotsky was among the most vicious of them but they were all quite vicious When Lennon took over as I said he would soon get 6 relatively shortly thereafter Stalin would eventually replace Lenin through a number of connivance and assassinations and Trotsky would originally become the head of the military The Red Army but he fell out of favor Because he had a different ideological view of Marxism than did Stalin Stalin's view was more akin to a strong man and a single political party the Communist Party which would be the state the party is the state And that party would be a permanent fixture That would in essence ensure that the Marxist economic system and all the rest of it would be enshrined and be complied with

And so we are thrilled about that. We are seeing progress in Georgia. It's Georgia is a politically charged environment right now, and there are on the Republican side. There are camps fighting against each other one that wants to see this investigation proceed and the Kemp, the Brian Kemp camp that wants to bury it. And so that's a challenge. But we're working through it yet and it's also progressing in Wisconsin. We have a couple of law enforcement efforts in quite there. So yes, it's all going well. And then what's next beyond Leon that is something that we're calling pulling the rip cord and frankly Sam maybe the thing I am most excited about because I'm an activist and I know the power of citizen engagement. And pulling the rip cord means we are going to take all of the data that we have and release it publicly for the purpose of crowdsourcing and further research.

Many of the Deep State Crooks Are Back

"Many of the same deep state crooks that were behind the Russia collusion hoax. That were that came out to certify that the Hunter Biden laptop was, quote, Russian disinformation. I mean, these shameless liars are now back. And what are they about to do? They're back to sign a joint letter, very similar to the letter that they signed in the Hunter Biden case. This time calling for social media to protect censorship. To keep censorship. And not to open itself up to a wider parameter of permissible viewpoints. And they're claiming that this is necessary to guarantee the national security. It's a complete fraud. But let's look at who some of these thugs are. Well, sure enough, James clapper, big surprise. Former Obama CIA director Michael morrell, former Obama CIA Pentagon chief Leon Panetta. But you got a few new names too. Form a bush natural security adviser, Fran Townsend. And these guys come out with their usual, well, they start off with this rather grandiose pronouncement quote, this is a pivotal moment in the modern history. There's a battle brewing between authoritarianism and democracy. Well, first of all, that is actually true. But not in the way they mean. There's a battle brewing between authoritarianism and democracy and they represent authoritarianism. And that's what they're trying to enforce on social media. They are the voices for authoritarianism, but posing as the voices of democracy. So there are the emissaries of the very evil that they describe here. And the pretext for censorship now is Ukraine. You're like, Ukraine. How does a debate over Ukraine threaten our existential our national security? It doesn't. It's obvious it doesn't, but these guys have sort of gotten themselves tied themselves into a knot, in which basically the defense of Ukraine is nothing more than the defense of the west, which is nothing more than the defense of America. Therefore, to be critical of anything happening in the Ukraine is basically to show yourself to be a traitor to show yourself to be a danger to national security. I mean, the leaps of logic, the chains that are woven here are really pretty remarkable.

Lee Smith Helps Us Unpack the Ukraine War

"With us right now is Lee Smith. He is a well respected author and columnist and an expert on international relations as we are going to kind of just give an update on what's happening in Ukraine. We haven't even mentioned Ukraine for a couple of weeks, and nobody better than Lee Smith to help us unpack it, Lee. Welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie, thank you very much for inviting me back. It's great to speak with you. And thanks for asking me to speak about this important topic. Look, I mean, what I have written, what I've explained in the past is a lot of the noise that we've seen coming out of the war. I mean, these are two countries at war, Russia and Ukraine. So we can expect for there to be all sorts of propaganda. And information warfare. What's peculiar about this, what's peculiar about this conflict is the amount of propaganda that's coming out of the United States. In particular, it's coming out of Washington regarding this war and as I've argued since the beginning of this conflict, what this indicates is information warfare is attached to real genuine operations. The information warfare that's being waged against the American people regarding the conflict in Russia and Ukraine is attached to genuine operations targeting the American public. In particular, you're a great audience may have seen yesterday a letter signed by former intelligence chiefs, including James clapper, Michael morrell, Leon Panetta, right? And what they are asking what they are warning is that the disinformation coming out of Russia means that the intelligence community needs more control over big tech. And if you break up big tech, if you go after Google, if you go after Apple, if you go after large big tech corporations, you're going to be making American national security vulnerable. And they've been so helpful so far. These big tech corporations to us here running national security. What I'm getting at is that Vladimir Putin's invasion of Russia has served as cover for the national security establishment to escalate its war against the American republic.

"Welcome back. I'm talking to Patrick Byrne, who has been at the very center of this issue of a stolen election trying to bring to light what happened. If you're not interested, you're a sick person who doesn't deserve to live in the United States of America. People have died. So that we could vote so that we could elect our leaders. If you don't care about this, you don't deserve to live in this country. There are people like Patrick Byrne working hard, not because they need the money because they believe in right and wrong to make clear what happened. So Patrick, what is the name of the organization? Is there a website folks can go to? America project dot com that was started by Mike Flynn and Joe Flynn and myself. That's the organization through which we're pushing back in so many ways. All of the country now there are election, there are hearings that are popping up. Where a state senator gets a room, get some citizens in, and they tell stories and get affidavits about what happens when they vote. We've been encouraging and lubricating that around the country. We were very much involved with the Virginia, the turnaround in Virginia. And that just came about because pastor Leon Benjamin, he came up with a business plan for how to tighten up election integrity in Virginia. It took a quarter of a $1 million. We funded it. It was bipartisan, get a bunch of volunteers and they tighten up Virginia and you look what happened. They timed it up about 40% and look what happened. They took back the parliament, the legislature and the gubernatorial that they had not even expected to.

"Of springs church, host of return to reason. God bless you, sir. Thank you. Thanks so much Eric. And a chartreuse microbus. But it didn't have a dog gun dime assist pink pen in this here's a rubber duck. We just need to go to pay no toll. So the Christ, the gate doing 98 as has left them truckers rolling ten four. Hey, folks, welcome back. We have been talking to Leon fontaine about the truckers in Canada. Now Alvin, we have to say this. Yeah. There is a popular uprising happening around the world. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a good thing. But the media who are basically globalist, I always try to think of the nice word for whores, but I can't. They are globalist shills, they do not report. In other words, they don't either they don't get what is happening or they are totally opposed to it. And they will say anything, including and it just breaks my heart, but including lying. Now, I know there are a lot of people listening to go like, yeah, yeah, what's new, Eric? I want to tell you, I grew up in a world where that normally would not fly to have the media utterly refuse to even figure out what is going on and to present a narrative. So that's what they're doing. It is really ugly. And I want us to preserve a sense of horror at it. Don't think like, well, that's the new normal. That's the way it is. You should never get that. That's called cynicism. And I want to really be clear that these truckers and they're going to be many American truckers who are going to be a convoy going to D.C. soon. This is a popular uprising and it reminds me inescapably of when Luther became a voice for the people. This is not anti Catholic. This is just a populist movement. People said, here's a guy expressing what we feel. We're going to cheer him. And they lined the roads as he made his way to worms, Germany for the diet of worms. They thought he is going to speak truth to power. He's going to the center of power. It wasn't Ottawa, it wasn't D.C. in those days for this particular season. It was worms, Germany, where the imperial diet once a year they would gather the nobles, the leaders. And the people cheered him, and they didn't know what he succeed would he be killed, there was a good chance he would be killed. Savannah was killed. So many were killed who tried to bring reform and whether you're talking about religious reform or political reform. At the end of the day, folks, it's the same thing. It's truth versus lies. It's good versus evil. And the truckers that Lee and fontaine has been talking about, we know that most of them express what many of us are feeling. Yeah. And I want to say we supported the truckers today when you came in. I came in right behind you and we made our own convoy. It was a crazy convoy. It was. It was so crazy. It was too taxicabs. Beautiful. Join us folks. You know, we put the pedal to the metal. We laid the hammer down. We saw some smokies. It was awesome. Okay, so we do. We do have to say that in our two. Today, we're talking to our buddy. Kevin McCullough now in this program he's not known as Kevin McCullough. He's not KMC radio. On this program, Chris heims dubbed him votes to domus. Yes. Votes predominant knows all tells all he speaks in medieval French quatrains about our political landscape. It's very frightening. It's eerie, smoke appears behind him when he begins to make his pronouncements. He's like the delphic oracle, the fumes, the giddy fumes. Okay, so we've got Kevin McCullough coming up. Really soon. Stay tuned. And we want to remind people yesterday we had on Mike lyndell, who gave us an update. And again, you talk about the mainstream media not covering this. It is just despicable. It's sick. I want people to be outraged to say, in America, journalists should be journalists. They shouldn't be shills for whatever idea they're told they're supposed to believe. So Mike lyndell yesterday talked about what is happening in Arizona. It's happening in Wisconsin. Things are still happening, but you never hear anything about it. So you think, oh, it's not happening. It is happening. So stay strong, keep praying. Yes. And use the code Eric when you go to my when you go to my store dot com dot com new traumatic dot com use the code Eric because we need your help. God bless you will be right back. What's your 20?.

"Big thing you're still too close to see how that holds is starting to close up. Thanks, you better back folks are not going to lean fontaine, who's a pastor in Canada, we're talking about the situation with the truckers who have converged and continue to converge on Ottawa, their nation's capital to protest the vaccine mandates, Leon, we're seeing very similar dynamics in the United States. Most mega church pastures, most pastors in the United States somehow, they have the deeply mistaken fatally mistaken impression that they can sit this one out that they can kind of not take sides or that they can side with the government and go along with the language, the nonsense, the idea that this is about safety. This is about, we know that it's not. We have to say that it's not. But it sounds to me like you have a similar dynamic in Canada where a handful of pastors like you are discerning what is happening and you're sticking your neck out as you are by coming on this program and talking about it on your own program. Yeah. For every mile of truth, there's two miles a ditch. So, you know, we've got pastures that are really on a side. I probably wouldn't go because we've got a democracy. There's lots of ways for us to have our voice be heard. And what's interesting also is that this seems to have spawned convoys all over the world. We're getting calls from a country of the world that are doing convoys towards their capital. And people are just contacting us from around the world saying you've given us such hope. And mainstream media for us seems to have been saying everybody's for this. Everybody's for this. And so everyone is just kind of just oh really, I guess they're sharing stats that it's like man past 90%. You know, this is what everybody wants. And that's how lying that's going. We might as well go back to the Soviet Union under Stalin. I mean, they have the power to lie. They have the power to control the media. It really is evil, but I think when you're dealing with good people, as most of the people of Canada are good people, most Americans are decent people. It's hard for them to see the horror. They don't want to see that they are being manipulated and lied to, because frankly, it's very depressing to when you understand that people whom you have given power are abusing their power. Yes. That is very true. You know, herein we have another kind of cool to watch. One of our border borders where the Americans and are trying to come across and it was coots. And they're blocking off. They got farmers and farm tractors and semi trucks and semi trailers and the other day, a hundred cowboys on horseback and the videos are out. They're all came in there to support them. And I mean, seniors coming in by helicopter to do a concert and bring them food. This is far beyond just truckers. We are seeing more lawyers stepping up on social media. We're seeing more doctors speaking up. Pre years now in Canada. And, you know, you can say, well, this convoy has nothing to do with that. I don't agree. But premieres are loosening up and saying, now we're going to stop the mandates, one province is saying that. Another one is saying soon by the end of the month, we're stopping all the mandates. When you walk into stores, if you did not have a mask on, you didn't use their squirt jar of plans or for your hands. You were forbidden to walk in. They're loosening up, like everywhere we go. We're seeing things loosen up. And I think people are waking up. And it's like both sides are tired. Even the ones who are afraid and going, we're not being strict enough because people are petrified. Now, in our families, there's a divide. Christmas time was awful. Almost every family could not get together with their extended family because of the incredible fear on one side and the others who said, no, I'm not putting that in. What one side is saying, everybody should be taking it, and you should do this in a love for your neighbor. And then the other side is saying, I'm not putting anything into my body. The government is forcing me to end by the way. There's no track record. There's no proof. No one is standing behind these vaccines. So look, this is the point is that the mainstream media and the medical establishment and the governments, they've basically destroyed their credibility completely. If you've been paying any attention, you could have been an agnostic on all of these issues, but if you've been paying attention from the beginning, you've noticed discrepancies. You've said wait a second. That doesn't make sense. Are they going to correct themselves? No, they're just going to go in a different direction and never make reference to the fact that what they said three months ago. Now the opposite is true. People average people, good people. Symbolized represented by these truckers have noticed these things. And they've said, listen, when my health is at stake, when my making a living is at stake, when my family is at stake, I will no longer trust the people who have lied. All of the information, the negative information about these vaccines has been suppressed. And I think to myself, well, you know, if you hadn't done that, you wouldn't be in this situation, but people have noticed that any time somebody comes out with something, you demonize the people. You call them names. You wipe them off of YouTube, whatever it is you can do. It looks like you're afraid of the truth. It doesn't look like you're on the side of the truth. And so the fact that these truckers have been standing up, Americans and people around the world are cheering and cheering and cheering. We do need to pray, I want to say it again since you're a pastor. We know that God allows evil to happen sometimes in history. We know that, although Martin Luther was cheered and cheered and cheered and survived a hundred years before him January hus was killed. So there are no guarantees that the truth wins in the short term, which is why I hope that the people who are listening to this will pray because we could have an extraordinary breakthrough and we could have freedom breaking out all around the world, but we don't want to have false hope. No, you know, a very interesting thing that I respect and appreciate about America. Is that you champion individual rights. And you will say that the best thing a group of people can have is individual rights. But in Canada, we don't our laws, although we're democracies and in other countries, they champion the cause of group rights. And if the group feels a majority of the group feel this needs to be done, then the individual rights of the people who don't agree are trodden on. And so it's not that what they're doing is legal. It's just, it's very interesting to me, how if you can get the country on side with something evil like taking away freedom, taking away freedom of speech, taking away the right to speak up, censoring anything that would help you to know what to do with your children and yourself. There is so much evil behind somewhere here, and yes, everybody needs to pray. We're out of time, Leon fontaine, senior pastor.

"In Canada and you'd appreciate this after writing the book that you did. The church seems to be afraid to speak up in fact, they have signed multiple things against me saying, you know, just obey the word of God and submit. And so there's not too many people that will just take even the programs I'm doing and return to reason about citizenship and censorship and saying, we need to speak up as citizens we need to speak up. And but there's this, there is quite a movement amongst the churches that says, listen, we are to submit to the authorities that be and they're not thinking this thing through. Right. And it's never turned out good when the church has been quiet in history well, listen, obedience to authorities that have no business being an authority is obedience to tyrants and you become really passively an enemy of God. God wants us to speak the truth. We know that many Christians in the first centuries were counseled just a little pinch of incense to Caesar and you can get on with your life. What's the big deal? Rather than do that, they went to their deaths. Why, why would the leaders with the Canadian pastors counseling did they forget about that episode in history? We have the same thing going on in the United States today. You have to have discernment to understand how to behave and a lot of them are not getting it. We'll be right back folks.

"Dot com. Cooks welcome back. I'm talking to Liam fontaine in Canada, our Friends to the north about the situation with the truckers who have gathered in Ottawa, the capital of Canada. And I just want to ask you pastor Leon fontaine. You know, right now, we don't know where this is going to go. So our prayers matter, I think of situations in the past in my country in this country. Whether it's ruby ridge or Waco, you sometimes the situations are questionable, but the government acts in a way that is tremendously heavy handed and it leads to grotesque tragedy and we know that we know that we know that with the communists did in tenement square the crackdown. What I'm hearing from you, what is really horrifying to me, I guess, is that it's not just the government, but it's the mainstream media in Canada that's complying with the government against freedom against the will of the Canadian people. What happened. The GoFundMe page? Can you talk about that? Because I actually couldn't believe it when I read it that GoFundMe did what they did. Yeah, I'm not the lawyers involved, but what we talked with them, they had raised close to 10 million, if not more. And it was to look after the truckers. Et cetera and someone says it was the way the chief of police in Ottawa described them, but mainstream media continues to describe them as occupying and hurting businesses, making children afraid, political people are saying that this is terrorism. And so they use some of this from what I can understand and said that they were not releasing the money and so they went ahead with another group and they've already I think in the first couple of days raised past 4 million and apparently after a bunch of stuff go fund me, someone said they were going to give someone else the money, but they were going to give all the money back and people that are going to just turn around and give it to another company that's going to help. Well, this is nothing but theft. And I just want to be clear that this is what we're up against. We're up against people that are willing to lie. They're willing to demonize it never goes well when governments tried to demonize groups of people. We know that that's out of the pit of hell. It is absolutely evil. And it's effective. If you start demonizing the Jews, eventually you can treat them like the vermin that you say that they are. And people will go along with it. It's horrifying, but we've seen it in history. The idea that Justin Trudeau would be demonizing good people, hardworking people, if you're driving a truck for a living, I would go with what you think any day before I would side with the pretty boy who's never worked an actual day in his life named Justin Trudeau. And I think people see this and it's one of the reasons I wanted to have you on this program is because people need to know, we're not going to stop talking about this. We're not going to we're not going to take our eyes off the ball. And when you steal people's gas canisters, when I'm sorry, what's the name of the GoFundMe? When they act as though they can do what they want with this money, it's scandalous. It's against economic freedom much less freedom in a deeper sense. I think give send go is the platform that people of faith are increasingly using. I have a page on give, send go. But we're having to behave differently. We're having to say, I'm going to think twice before I do business with that company because they've shown their true colors. They've shown that they don't care about they don't care about freedom. And let's talk about religious liberty. I mean, this is not a religious movement, but it has the feel of one. It's very interesting to me when you have big state government. It acts it acts in a secular way. I don't know how many of these truckers or people of faith. But it really feels like something more than just a war over vaccines. Yeah. You know, here.

"So day after day after day, we put a team on the ground because I know I'm a pastor, but I wear a few hats. One of them is, we have the miracle channel in the cocoa channel, which are two channels here in Canada. And so we do news on one of them, and I do a show called return to reason, which is kind of interpreting the news, taking a look at it. And so we put a team on the ground because we're finding with our mainstream media that 600 over $600 million two years ago, the federal government gave to these mainstream media channels and since then, whatever the government wants seems to be all that they do, so as we tried to get information about this, everything is being censored like you wouldn't believe brilliant scientists and doctors and people who would disagree even if they were the top of their field in the world, Don out, and nothing goes on mainstream media. And so we put a team there. They've been watching it every day. It is so amazing. These convoy, now that they're there, is shoveling sidewalks. They are helping each other out. And then things begin to happen that we're kind of weird like all of a sudden, Nazi symbols would show up. And we couldn't find it, but then the mainstream media we have a photo op with that and say, this is a bunch of terrorists. They are maligning this con by like you wouldn't believe. So our team, I would go live on Facebook and Instagram every day. And we would walk them through all the trucks and all the people so that you could everybody around the world could see on these lives exactly what was going on. So they would say, well, someone hurt the Terry Fox statue, which is one of our statues. And none of us would do it. So someone was trying to smear this. This is what they call a false flag operation or whatever you have people that are infiltrating. Look, this happened on January 6th. It is as insidious as it gets that you don't like some people. I mean, look, evil people around the world have been pulling this kind of thing. The Nazis, I just wrote about that era. So I happen to know they did this all the time when they attacked Poland. Many people know the story. When they attacked Poland, they pretended that Poland had attacked them first and they murdered someone to produce a corpse. In other words, lying is nothing, lying is just the beginning of a level of deception and malevolence to crush freedom. That's what we're talking about. The idea it's been happening in the United States, of course, but the idea that it's happening in Canada is horrifying. And yet I really do believe that the cultural elites who are the enemies of freedom have gone too far, and when you've woken up the truckers, folks, you're in trouble, your days are numbered. We're gonna be right back talking to pastor Leon fontaine, don't go away. Hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Talbott have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about a dollar a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or the three week quick start from 1995, let's see if we can get you at a pain too, go to relief factor dot com relief factor dot com or call 805 108 three 8 four 805 108 three 8 four relief factor dot com.

Eric the taxes. Hey there folks, welcome to the Eric metaxas show. For today, I'll be playing the role of Eric metaxas. And I have a guest who will be playing the role of himself. Leon fontaine is a senior pastor of a church in Canada. Now, if you're in America, if you're in the United States, Canada is just up above where we are and most people today, as soon as I mentioned Canada, you think of the first thing you should think of, the truckers, what is happening in Canada. The reason I have Leon fontaine as my guest today is because I want to talk to him about that issue, Leon fontaine, welcome to the program. It's good to be here. There's so much. If you don't mind for people who know nothing about the situation with the truckers in Canada, give us an overview of what is happening. Well, Canada, for those who don't know, is more socialistic than America. And it's been going that way for a lot of years. And so when all of this begin to come down, and we can talk about all the rest of it. But the truckers were keeping everything going. I mean, back and forth between America, Canada, food, for the last two years, they've been just left alone to keep our supplies running. And as we tend to sense we're winding down anyway, they decided that truckers had to be vaccinated to cross the border. Apparently the report says that RPM wanted that, and then apparently encouraged the Americans to do the same. And your p.m. you meet obviously your prime minister Trudeau. I always get him confused with Gavin Newsom. Okay, so this is most people listening know this is kind of silly. The idea that truckers would need to be vaccinated. When was this law laid down by the Canadian prime minister and his government well, I don't have the exact date, but it would just be in the last few weeks. They tend to threaten and talk about stuff, trying to get everyone vaccinated. But the truckers had had enough. They just felt like if we for two years have been running without needing a vaccination passport. So the ones who aren't vaccinated coming back into Canada have to spend 14 days. Isolated. Well, you can just about they're all going to go bankrupt and truckers who have been going back and forth for two years. No problems and all of a sudden we're going to do mandates. We're going to make them do this. So a ton of them are vaccinated and they just had enough and they supported their brothers and sisters who weren't vaccinated and said it's not about the vaccination. It's about the mandate. It's about forcing us to and the idea for the convoy began. Well, and so what is the convoy? They're driving from where to wear what give us because you know we all most Americans of a certain age are familiar with the concept of a convoy. We all have our CB radios. And we don't really know was the convoy going from some place to someplace else? Is it just a general term for truckers converging on Winnipeg? What exactly is this convoy that we're talking about? So a group got together and told everyone, let's meet in Ottawa, parliament hill, and let's meet there on this date, and so they began in British Columbia, which is way over our West Coast. Truckers begin to gather. And they begin to get on the highway and they headed for Ottawa. And then each city, each but trucks are one of them to join them could join them. This started out from the east as well in the maritimes and they begin to come from there. We had American truckers who wanted to be a part of it, and they started coming from across the border. And then people in vehicles begin to join them. When they first started this convoy, the group that runs it all said they had 50,000 trucks sign up for this. And let's face it, what is this? This is a show of support, this is a show of defiance. I think this is a sign of health in Canada. When I heard about this, I said to myself, this is beautiful. Because, you know, most of us in the United States think that countries that have gone more socialist than we already have here. That the people have laid down, they don't care. They go along with it. So to see this happening, I think people around the world, but especially people in the United States, we are cheering because this is an issue of freedom. This is an issue of freedom. It's not an issue of medicine. It's an issue of freedom. And I think the idea that the working class standing up this way, they are the backbone of every country. But so many people are cheering. So many people are excited. So where are things now? I mean, I know you and I are talking today. This will air probably in a couple of days. But what is happening? I mean, once they get to Ottawa, once they get to Trudeau's residents or wherever they're parking, what happens now, they camp out and continue just to or are they are they building like an autonomous zone? What are they doing? Well, they arrived there, 8 or 9 days ago, ten days ago. And they all, as many trucks as could got close to the parliament hill. And the police were trying to shut them down and they were getting around. And then they managed to shut how many trucks got into the parliament hill area. And so groups of trucks begin to gather in separate spots all over the city. And so that's been going on. So as of just lately..

"Like think about what that means. Think about the fact that they didn't even cast a black gay actor. Or a black gay character, it's played by a straight Italian American man. So just like process that, that erasure. You know, the problem is gender and misogyny in this country is still so retrograde. That we can't even get to these higher level complexities. But I will say I think gay men gave black men and cisgender women in this country have a very complicated relationship. And it's all because we're living under the foot of white patriarchy. I want to make it very clear. But yeah, I mean, I think when drawing from, let's just say film tropes since I guess devil Wes fraud is on my mind. I mean, when I think of the trope of the magical Negro, I think that informs, for example, a lot of how black gay people are treated in media. And often in the workplace, where the girlfriend where the sassy dispenser of advice were loud, wear a character. We're not an expert. We're not more qualified than our peers, right? We're like kind of lucky to be there and tolerated. And they'll tell you, I think they'll say you shouldn't. Oh yeah? Yeah, and I think we see that a lot in there. Dynamic and also how they're dynamic is depicted. Yeah, and we also know from our own experiences and history, I'm just going to say a lot of this, I feel like lately in media, we have to root things in historical context to be like, hey, this has happened before. But I think a lot about and this person is not queer, so no one tweet at me that I'm queering someone that's not queer, but Frederick Douglas versus Susan B. Anthony. That story can tell you a lot about the relationships of power and whiteness and blackness and gender in America through a straight person's lonesome black straight man. But Susan B. Anthony, when she found out black men were about to get the right vote before white women, she got hella racist and went on a tour in the south. And that's what Andre Leon talley kind of hints to us in so many interviews of if I speak too loud if I name this how it is, they will destroy me. And at the end, his life was pretty destroyed. He died in destitute. Let us not forget that today. Yeah. You know, I keep thinking about this dynamic between Anna and Andre and the long history we've seen of white people and straight people harnessing queer culture or harnessing black culture for their own ends but never fully empowering those queer people or those black people or giving them all that they deserve in the process. And you want to say, oh, it's getting better, but then as you mentioned, I watched cheer season two, the hit Netflix show. And you've got this white presenting coach, coach Monica. Whose team is really built on the backs of these handful of strong, beautiful, black queer men who are immensely talented and creative. And it feels like the same parasitic dynamic that Andre described with Anna is happening in that situation too. And I get sad when I think that I'm watching this show and this dynamic in 2022 and I'm like, how much has changed? Well, I think something that is really frustrating. Is everything is complicated. I keep having to say that. Everything is complicated, but it is, that, you know, a lot of queer people, let's say queer men. You know, we gravitate towards the world of fashion and theater and style because perhaps other spaces and other career paths dominated by men, white men in particular are made to feel unwelcome to us. Or even threatening while exactly. They're often literally dangerous, right? And then meanwhile, because of women and the glass ceilings that they deal with in other spaces, a space like fashion becomes a certain kind of domain for them. And so to me, I think it is interesting to see these two groups. That both have kind of been pushed into a certain kind of box. You know, because of the way racism and patriarchy work, you know, it's not a kumbaya kind of moment. You know, it's not people suddenly coming together and supporting one another based on their outcast status. Instead, it's unfortunately, you know, just as toxic and competitive often as other spaces. Yeah. I want to talk about the tail end of Andre's career and life. And you both have kind of referenced this. Towards the end, just began to spill the tea. You know, after decades of being fashion's biggest booster and brand ambassador and working for Vogue and being in the highest parts of the world of high fashion, he began to talk about how badly he had been treated during his career. There was his memoir and other long interviews where he talked about all of it. He talked about once being called queen Kong. He talked about being underpaid compared to white peers. He talked about a dinner party where the hostess ingest called him the N word in front of the entire party and he just had to roll with it. He spilled all the tea. They were saying I was a gay ape clean Kong. And that went on. And I knew this from very close friends. I never confronted her because these things internalized and kept them bottled up. And. You know how much I wish my grandmother had been alive to have seen this. My grandmother was dead. People always say, how are you doing? How do you put up with this world for so long? What did it feel like for you to see that happen when it happened? There's so many lessons. I mean, and I saw rock sand gay point this out, you know, these institutions are never gonna love us, no matter how much we love them. That does not mean give up your passion or your dream. You know, I would never tell someone, like my dream is to be a fashion design. I'm not gonna tell you, oh, just walk away. You know? But I think we learn from people like Andre Leon talley and listen there are so many other peers, unfortunately who have been through similar experiences in different industries. You need to understand the system. And you need to understand that you're going to have to make some difficult choices. And none of them were easy, but they will have to be made. I think you need to hold on to the love. Because at the end of the day, Andre, the two things I know about Andre, Leon Taylor actually three. I know he loved himself. I know he loved beauty, and I know he loved black people. He never let go of that. You know? And I think those are lessons. Yeah. You know, one thing I kept thinking as he died, and as he spent the last few years of his career in life talking about the hardships he endured, I said to myself, okay, you being confessional now towards the end, is that an act of bravery or an act of cowardice or a certain kind of savvy or something else? Because part of me says, Andre, you were the most powerful black queer man in fashion for decades, you could have maybe spoke out earlier. And I don't know if I should be mad at him about that or just say, you know what, this man had to do what he had to do to survive. I'm choosing not to be mad. I have the same problem. Okay. I've been thinking about this a lot. And I think some of my own career probably all of our careers, people could say the same thing to us. But I want to be giving of grace today and know that at his heart, he did always look black people. People do gloss over the fact that he was an editor at ebony magazine a lot back and forth. He even vested in black media in real ways and tried to build bridges between Vogue and ebony in very real ways. And he would have made up any of the equal to Vogue if the world was listening. So just like Andre was good at reading the room and reading the future of fashion, he also knew what it meant to be a big black man in America and knew when it was the right time to say something in a bigger way. I did love the hierarchy of the world. We can not ignore that. But I do think in the later parts of his life, he won it more equality. He wanted more decentralization to happen. More people have chances. Because black people at the very beginning growing up in North Carolina have the vision and they have the passion. They just need.

"And being denied his library card because he was black. That is within a decade of someone like Andre Leon talley, walking into his public library in North Carolina and picking up his first issue of Vogue. And the reason they are both on my mind so much is like, look at the arc of their lives. And to me, you know, the only institution in our country, perhaps, whiter than politics is fashion. And so it's so interesting to think about what it means for someone like Andre Leon tally, who loved the institution of fashion, who loved its possibilities, its fantasies, what that joy provided us. He loved it at more than fashion ever loved him. And here we are, you know, watching senators refuse to honor representative John Lewis's legacy when it comes to voting rights. You know, another white institution that refuses to substantively honor the contributions of a black person who survived the Jim Crow south and contributed everything they could to our country. And so yeah, I think it's heartbreaking. It's really difficult to have these icons these heroes who were so good to us and I say us as black people. They were good to everybody, but they were really good to us. You know, and to see that they didn't perhaps always in their lifetimes. You know, always received that in turn. Yeah. Yeah. So he did a lot in his career, but Andre Leon talley was perhaps most well known for being the creative director at Vogue for a very long time. What does it mean to be a creative director at a place like Vogue magazine? I mean, I have a great example that someone shared just yesterday. One of my favorite designers is Rick Owens. You know, we love his gothy, a lot of leather, a lot of black asymmetrical genderqueer fashion. He shared that when he was a young designer. I believe he was based in LA for the time. This is 2000. He said he just got a call on his landline out of the blue, and he picked up the phone and it was a loud person. And it was Andre Leon tally and Andre said I saw your stuff like on the window like passing it on the street. You've got to meet Anna wintour. And you know, and now Rick Owens is like a staple in the industry. I think people who don't even know Rick Owens know his look, you know what I mean? And I think that's an excellent example of the work that Andre was doing it Vogue. Yes. And another thing that also comes to mind for me is his 1996 cover. He did for Vanity Fair, which is part of the Conde nast family. And he did this cover with Naomi Campbell where he made the talk about that. Yes. Where he made her Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind, and he said, you know what girl we're going to make you the white woman in this and all the black people wealthy and white people the opposite and that was John galliano and manolo blahnik, who was a dear friend of his for a long time. But that's 1996. He's like flipping one of the most famous films on its head and books and saying, no, black people are reclaiming this. In the pages of white women's homes, where they're like, what the hell? Scarlet's not black. Do you not know me Campbell? Incredible. Coming up, more on Andre Leon tally. And his tumultuous relationship with Anna winter. This message comes from NPR sponsor CarMax, imagine buying a car the way you want.

What do we do about all we knew about Bill Cosby and what we know now? We need to talk about Cosby, premieres Sunday, January 30th, only on showtime. We all have moments where our limits are tested. What I want to talk about is how we define those limits. And what it means to exceed them. I'm Jay Williams. Check out my show the limits where I talk to people who have overcome theirs and achieve the great things in business, sports, and culture. Listen to the limits, from NPR. So I want to talk about the relationship between Anna winter and Andrea on tally. And all of the gender and racial complications it contains. Let's do it. Let me get my vaseline. So. Winter admitted that Andre knew more about fashion and fashion history that did. And tally towards the end of his career in life called their relationship, parasitic Ana being the parasite. First question on this for you both. How would you two describe the relationship between these two people? I'm trying to choose my words very carefully. Let it out. Let it out. As someone a bit too close to some of this. I mean, I do think Andre says a parasitic, and I think that's right. And I think that can exist in Anna wintour not be the devil incarnate even though the movie is called the devil wears Prada. I think there is a way in which black people through every institution in every expression of creativity have been used and abused and left to the side. So it's really nothing that different. It's just probably the most famous example of white women or white people. Specifically white women a lot. I mean, Sam, you said this to us the other day. Cheer and Monica and her black queer folks, we can get into that if you want. But there is a relationship in an American history of white people using black people's labor to build empires. That's just fact. So Andre Leon tali is the best example of how the fashion industry has built its future self off his back and now we're seeing kind of the fruits of his labor, or the seeds he planted where we are seeing lots of black people in editorial roles, leading fashion houses, but that's because underlying told them to do that. And they finally just now listened. Oh, there's so much to say. I mean, one because we keep referencing the devil wears Prada, which obviously is a work of fiction inspired by the fashion industry inspired by a lot of these people. But it is striking that like Stanley choo Chi's character clearly is supposed to be Andre Leon talley. 100%. So for those of you listening, you know, many people know that movie but may not know Andre Leon talley..

"Andre had said the two most important people in his life were his grandmother and his mentor. Fashion editor Diana vreeland. He said those two women were very much alike because both of them. Among other things, gave people joy. And the gospel according to Andre, he quoted back something Diana vreeland once said. You want to give the world some sort of spark that is perhaps not there. For a lot of us, Andre was at spark. But also for a lot of us, myself included, we didn't recognize that spark until way later. Even though Andre Leon talley had been around for decades, most of my friends and people my age we didn't really appreciate who he was, until he was cast as a judge on America's next top model. America's next top model is when he became part of the zeitgeist, I think for all of us, especially millennials. This is Zack Stafford. He's a journalist and columnist at MSNBC. He brought such a different energy and I just remember in particular him saying, you know, that's just too much passion, and this is poet Saeed Jones. You know, he was totally bringing a different spirit to frankly kind of bean spirited show. And then I just, I had to learn about this person. I keep thinking about this one moment of Andre on America's next top model that kind of just proves his spirit. So a lot of those judges were kind of mean to the girls and the boys on the show. But there was one black model. A laser. Oh wow, was a little rough around the edges. And she had a shoot and was showing the photos to the judges. And all of the judges clowned her. Let's take a look at your best shot with your vest. You ever seen a photo like that? No, have I? There's a reason. Okay. Okay, so which question magazines have you been studying? Except for Andre I don't really know and he was like, no. I get it. I like it. I see her potential. Of having the imagination to take the jacket and put it on backwards and put your arm where it was and take that pose. I think it's a very raw, beautiful photograph. She goes on to like place in the top 6. She has a career modeling after that. And she was saved because Andre took the time to actually see her. And that was also present throughout his entire career. He was nice to the girls. He was nice to the boys. He really made it a point to be kind in a way that other folks just weren't doing. Yeah. I think that's why as Zack said, Andre Leon talley ALT became such an important part of the zeitgeist because he enters the public conversation in the 2000s at a point where I think we see the high fashion industry and a winter that world trying to bridge the gap with pop culture. And the thing is, black people are culture. And Andre in addition to, as I said in my essay about him, you know, he was comfortable in Milan and he could do Paris and he could talk to you about all of these different fashion eras, and he would throw out French terms that I still can't say. But he was raised by his grandmother, a church going woman endure him North Carolina. He had vivid memories of the segregated south and black women and church hats. And so I think when he then appears on a show like America's next top model, it's funny to see someone like Tyra bangs or Nigel Barker kind of parroting this arrogant snobby empty judgment. Yes. And then here comes entree and he's like, we are not just gonna dismiss this, and he very eloquently. You know, he's not just like defending her just to defend this black model. He actually has a really substantive long-lasting perspective on that moment. Yeah, and in the clip is incredible. If you haven't seen it, I think it's trending on Twitter still. But what he also says at the end is Tyra Banks who is one of the most famous black supermodels ever. I mean, she challenges him, saying what you really like this. He not only says yes, he says, yes, I would also buy this photo in a gallery. And I would hang it in my salon. He goes in this incredible model. He has a lot of the flavor you do this. Not in my living room. My salon. A salon is a room where you go and you confers, and you serve a beautiful drink and you talk about politics, religion, art, love, sex, beauty wine, roses, and that fabulous girl in my fabulous derriere, but I think it's a wonderful photograph. Thank you. And what he's saying in that moment is, you know, not only do I have taste, but I think this was worth us coming together in community and talking about its importance and bringing this person in. And that's why Andre was so incredible because throughout his whole career, he was about reaching out and bringing you in, whether you were black, white, Asian, whatever. It was about you being part of his family. And that's why he had such a familiar relationship with saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, so on and so forth. And also, why he and Anna wintour have such a complicated family I guess history with each other. I want to get to Anna wintour, but first I want to talk a little bit about his amazing journey. So we kind of mentioned a bit of it, but his story is almost a fairytale. His parents have him in Washington, D.C.. As soon as he's born, they drop him off at his grandmother's dorm North Carolina and say, you raise him. His grandmother is a maid at the men's dorms at duke university. But as a kid, around 9 or ten at the Durham public library, he discovers Vogue magazine, and it changes his life. He ends up going to brown, getting a master's degree in French literature, and then through his intellect and ability to make these really big connections very easily. He goes from interview magazine to women's wear daily to Vogue. I mean, that trajectory is so remarkable, but I'm wondering for the two of you, what part of that life story and the climb stands out to you most. For me, I was rereading a lot of things the last few days since he died and something that is so shocking and I'm sure we'll talk about this is the economic disparity of Adrian Daly compared to other white editors in the industry. From the beginning and it may have to do with the fact that he comes from a low income background and was creating luxury and fashion with little resources ever since he was a child. So he was used to this, but he was not getting paid anything. Yet he kept pushing through. And I think all of us have been in situations where we have not been paid so long to other people. And we kept pushing through. And that's where I think black boys like us see a lot of ourselves in him is that he said, my dream is bigger than that dollar than that house. It's worth fighting for. Yeah. You know, something that's heavy on my mind, this morning is that. And I'm not exactly sure where they line up in age, but they're pretty close. You know, representative John Lewis just passed away, right? Like just a couple of years ago. Around the they are of the same era. They're around the same time that representative John Lewis has told the story as a kid of going into the public library where he lived in the south and trying to get a public card.

"You're listening to it's been a minute from NPR. I'm Sam Sanders. This week, the Andre Leon taui, there aren't enough words in the English language to fully describe him. But we can try. I don't live for fashion. I did for beauty and style. Fashion is fleeting, style remains. This is Andre Leon tally in the 2017 documentary, the gospel according to Andre. I think that beauty comes in many forms. It could be a flower. It could be a gesture. It could be so many things, so many things. Andre was a fashion editor. Most notably at Vogue magazine. And he was also larger than life. A phrase I have seen used in almost every story, and every interview I've read about him. But really, Andre was larger than life. He was a 6 foot 6 queer, loud black man who towered. Literally and figuratively over the fashion world. Usually while wearing a very dramatic cake. But this is not a shirt to sleep in, okay? This is a shirt to go to car Lagerfeld's house in in central pay to have lunch on the terrace. Then you change at night into another color. Perhaps in silk, this is not a night shirt. Don't get this mixed up with a grand papa night shirt. Not at these prices. Andre's story is kind of a fairytale. He grew up in the Jim Crow south. He discovered Vogue magazine and segregated Durham North Carolina. At the public library, when he was just a kid. And that changed his life. When I was ripping pages out of Vogue, putting the pitches up on my wall in my room, with thumbtacks, and I just had a room, wallpapered from head to ceiling, floored to ceiling with images from Vogue. Flash forward a bit, Andre goes on to become one of the most defining and recognizable voices in fashion for decades. He also had a master's degree in French literature. I know. Andre was poetic. He was lyrical. He was dramatic. He had impeccable taste. Better than mine, and yours too. But above all, he was nice, and generous with his gifts. I never showed my insecurity. I just rose to the occasion. I stood up straight and tall, like a tall, tall, sunflower, and I just radiated the light and the beauty of my mind in relationship to the world of fashion. There was simply no one else like him and mister Lagerfeld does not like to see you in his house on a vacation all day in the same outfit. You have to change at least twice if not three times a day. It's part of the rule. And it's right. Andrew Leon died earlier this week at the age of 73. After a past few years of finally revealing all the bad stuff he went through. As a.
